The Brighton-based peer-led recovery collective, Cascade Creative Recovery, have announced a week of events to mark 10 years since it started operating. The Decade of Gratitude week runs from 24th-30th September and includes music, art, poetry, and wellbeing events.

On Sunday 24th, from 1.30pm to 4pm, there will be a Mindfulness Walk through Stanmer Woods, a beautiful nature resort near the University of Sussex. Those wishing to take part should meet by the Attenborough Centre from 1pm.

From Tuesday to Thursday (26th-28th September), there will be an Art Exhibition and drop-in sessions at Cascade’s home in the Brighthelm centre, Central Brighton. The exhibition will feature work from the local recovery community, including David G Taylor, who generously supplied the back-cover art for Issue 4 of Performing Recovery, which will be out this Friday.

On Wednesday evening, from 7 to 10pm, will play host to an unplugged session from Not Saints, and live poetry from writers at Cascade.

The week ends with the Gratitude Gala on Saturday 30th. The gala will include theatre performances, and live music from the Cascade Choir in the first half, as well as the debut performance of the album “Decade” from the Cascade Open Mic regulars, to mark the release of the album on the same day. You can read more about Decade in the upcoming issue of Performing Recovery.

The event on Saturday is free, but to be guaranteed entry, book a ticket here.
